Sands Bereavement Care Training Workshops – open to all professionals

Our consistently well-evaluated one-day workshop for multidisciplinary groups has been awarded professional accreditation from the Royal College of Midwives, and allows participants to develop their knowledge, insight and skills to be able to provide high quality, sensitive care to parents who experience the death of a baby, before, during or shortly after birth. It is highly interactive and skills-based, enabling professionals to develop their confidence in providing high quality, sensitive care to bereaved parents.
